Album Review

This is one of Grover Washington, Jr.'s best-loved recordings and considered a classic of r&bish jazz. All four songs (which includes Billy Strayhorn's "Passion Flower") are quite enjoyable but it is "Mister Magic" that really caught on as a major hit. Bob James provided the colorful if somewhat commercial arrangements, there are spots for guitarist Eric Gale, and Washington (mostly on tenor and soprano) is heard in particularly creative form. Highly recommended.

Customer Reviews


The epitome of what smooth jazz is. Grover, bless his soul, could always be counted on to add class to any atmosphere. It would be great if the title track were available as a single. Why is it not?


Dude, You obviously don't know this genre. Grover was the benchmark for this style of fusion, which began in the early 1970's. There were and still are many pioneers, such as George Benson, the afremention Grover Washington Jr., the Crusaders (partially), Joe Sample (specifically), Bob James, Eric Gale, Freddie Hubbard (to some extent), Hubert Laws, Ronnie Laws, Earl Klugh, Stanley Turrentine, and many others that I can't remember....Show some respect! This genre is the introduction to "jazz", in the modern sense, for many who would never have made the discovery. Stanley

A highly influential player, Washington pushed himself with the spontaneity and risk-taking of a masterful jazz musician. Grover Washington, Jr.'s, father also played saxophone and was his first influence. The younger son started playing music when...
